Aerodynamic and hydrodynamic tests of a family of models of flying-boat hulls derived from a streamline body: NACA model 84 series
Description: Report presenting a series of related flying-boat hull forms with various combinations of aerodynamic and hydrodynamic requirements that were tested in an NACA tank and high-speed tunnel. Effects explored included varying the height of the bow, varying the height of the stern, increasing the angle of dead rise at the bow, decreasing the angle of dead rise on the afterbody, increasing the depth of step, increasing the angle of afterbody keel, adding chine flare, adding a third planing surface, and rounded chines at the bow.
